FOUNDATION STUDENT REGISTRATION
SPRING SEMESTER 2014
Please read the following information carefully before the advising meeting next week with Ted, Katie, and Angie. While this process can be complex, the following suggestions will help answer most of your questions. Remember we are here to help you with the process, but you need to be prepared. Do your research!
Here you’ll find the bfa-checklist that we handed out in class today. Take a look and save a copy for your records, so that you will always know your progress towards graduation. Next week come to class on Wednesday prepared with a plan for your Spring semester. Bring a list of courses you think interest you and what you have already taken.
Registration begins on Tuesday, November 12th for Freshmen. We will start classes at 9am in order for you to have time to register first thing in the morning.

Can you believe that A-block is coming to an end? Neither can we! There are a few important reminders before Fall Break begins. Make sure you are prepared for your last week of class. Once your projects are complete, document your work, clean up your space, and store your supplies. We do not provide storage space, but it is important that you keep your projects if possible for your final review at the end of the semester. We are talking high-quality images here, folks, not camera phone photos.
Additionally, next Wednesday we will NOT be meeting as regularly scheduled. Get caught up on projects, sleep in, or work on final papers.
We’ll post more details soon about B-Block!
Here are a few photos from our session last Wednesday. We have tons more photos on our Flickr, so check them out as well. And if you’re dying to do more Jane Fonda workouts and drawings, they’re available on Youtube here.
On Wednesdays we meet as a whole group for activities, lectures, you name it. For tomorrow’s class we will be meeting in the Harder Hall Studio at 9am to wrap your wheel barrows and store them in the Harder Hall courtyard. Afterwards we will be moving as a group to the Cohen Studio for a drawing activity. In terms of materials for tomorrow — please make sure that each wheel barrow group has a pair of scissors to cut the plastic wrap for covering your wheel barrows. You do not need to bring anything for the drawing activity. We will be providing materials. However, you will be getting messy to please dress appropriately.
